BNSF Transcon - Chillicothe, IL (Illinois River Bridge) 6-6-21
Author: flippin77

Hadn't fished on the IL River in a while so threw Lil Chico (the drone) in the boat. Pretty impressive, 9 trains in 2.5 hours on the Chilli Sub.
Look me up on YT for some other stuff I've shot.

Thanks for watching!

Super cool footage Andy! I always wondered what the bridge and adjacent terrain looked like. Thanks for sharing!

Good stuff, thanks for posting.  and I'lll bet it was interesting avoiding that high tension electric line!  

You used to be able to get in to the east side of that bridge on the ground but it got gated off several years ago.  This is about the only way you can shoot this bridge now, at least without tresspassing..

What are the speed restrictions for the bridge?

Little or none.

Z trains run by Chillicothe @ 60+ mph regularly with no apparent reduction for the bridge.

Now what I want to know - how was the fishing?   Dad, my uncle, and I used to fish around there since my uncle lived not too far away.  Always found it to be a little hit and miss on the fish, but always a good day out on the boat.
